Kimber micro 9 guide rod issues

I have a new kimber micro 9 fired around 100 rounds of 115g FMJ ammo and 25 rounds of Hornady Critical Defense (HCD) No issues at range. Stripped gun down throughly and cleaned/oil. Note prior to going to range oiled gun before firing first round. Iím now having issues when loading the gun with HDC that the guide rod doesnít stay in the slide but pokes out. The round doesnít feed correctly. Iíve read pros/cons with flat tipped ammo not necessarily HDC. Iíve checked to make sure mag is seated as well. Any ideas? Has anyone experienced this.

The only time my rod stuck out the front was when I missed the barrel link with the slide stop.

Did you take it apart and start over ?

Double check to make sure the guide rod is in the barrel slot. Also check to make sure you pressed the lever down at the rear of the slide when you reassembled.
Canít speak about the ammo, Iíve never used it, I use Speer 124 gr GD
